"Good" Has a Better Definition

When someone asks, “How are you doing?” What is your response?

It could be: "Oh, I'm good," which basically means don't ask me anymore, you really don't want to hear it. Or it might be: "I'm good, thanks. Hallelujah? Amen," which means don't ask me because I've got some issues right now

And when they ask, "How's your life?" 

"It's good. I got my house, got my car, got my dog, and I got my 2.5 kids." It's good! Our basic, worldly definition of good is: I'm satisfied. This is enough. I'm content. I could want more, but it's all good. 

So many of us have become content with how well we know Jesus, with our marriages, our families or our finances. It's good—blah! 

God's definition of good is so much bigger. He says, "I want you to flourish. I want you to abound. I want you to launch forth, spring forth and multiply!" That is what God has for you. That’s the power that is working in you.

He is the God who “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Eph. 3:20).

So don’t be satisfied with the world's definition of good or even your own definition of good. Get hold of God's definition of good, and say, "Lord, I believe that the good work that you started—the abundant, flourishing, abounding, multiplying work—is only going to get better!" 

When you get a better definition of good, God’s definition, those around you will always see you changing, growing, and experiencing the supernatural power of God in your life!
